Take a look at the Tahmoor Sporting Complex works progress!
- Design and construction work has begun for the athletics field. All turfed areas of the athletics field have been sprayed and rotary hoed.
- The construction fencing has been altered to include all of the existing netball courts and the future netball courts to enable excavation and placement of fill.
- The design for the Multi-Purpose Facility is nearing completion.
- The tender has been advertised for construction of the netball courts, with timeframes for delivery built in to ensure completion by the start of March 2021. 12 new hard courts will be built with $1 million in funding acquired by the Wollondilly Netball Association and the remainder of the cost covered by Council.
- Work has started on Stage 1 of the Tahmoor Sporting complex. Demolition of the athletics field is under way and earthworks will begin in approximately two weeks.
- The existing netball courts will be excavated to provide fill for the new netball courts in conjunction with athletics field earthworks.
- The multipurpose facility concept design is nearing completion and has been reviewed by the Project User Group. The concept is with a Quantity Surveyor for costing.
- Early demolition works will start next week in preparation for the construction of the Tahmoor Sporting Complex Athletics Field. These works are the first step in the construction of the new field, new amenities building and new netball courts. The works process has been designed to minimise the impact on seasons for the Wollondilly Netball Association and the Little Athletics Club. Council is working closely with both organisations to ensure they can progress with already limited seasons.
- Netball will be facilitated with temporary toilet and canteen facilities, storage and power supply for the lighting to accommodate their Covid reduced season. Little Athletics have been provided storage but due to construction will unfortunately only be able to operate their season after Christmas 2020, weather permitting. Soccer and Cricket will have access to the temporary toilets during their season.
- This project is made possible through funding from the Western Sydney City Deal Liveability Program.
